You can stick a fork in the 2005 Colorado duck and goose season this one is done! What an incredible season it was. Goose hunters averaged just a few percentage points under limits for the entire season and duck hunters averaged very close to four birds per gun per day. You can go to our web-site www.stillwateroutfitters.net and click on the Season Stats Page for exact harvest details for the 2005 season. After enduring some sub-zero temps in mid December the only real weather produced on the Front Range was wind. The windy conditions were a nuisance to the guides and hunters from time to time but it didnt seam to bother the geese in the least. They hung around in record numbers the entire season and we had excellent hunting through the last day. Once again if you go to the web site and can click on the Photo Gallery youll see a ton of success photos taken throughout the season. Theres a good chance your picture will be there somewhere! We took a harder swing at the ducks this year than in years past and had excellent results. Were adding a few more prime duck spots for the 2006 season in order to keep up with the increased demand. Ducks appear to be on the upswing in Colorado, based on harvest results we experienced this season and we want to take full advantage if it next season.
A Special Thanks goes out to all of you from all of us at Stillwater Outfitters. We very much appreciate those of you that hunted and supported us throughout the 2005 Season. We look forward to seeing all of you again next season!!!!
